James Earl Ray. the assassination of Martin Luther King, inmates. The Missouri State Penitentiary has a gas chamber that was used to execute forty convicts until it ceased to be used in 1989. The death row cellblock was located underground and in isolation from other inmates. Death row prisoners were not allowed to leave the death row unit for any reason. The imposing Gothic-style building was designed to appear unfriendly from the outside. On the inside, it was even worse, with cramped cells and miserable, inhumane conditions. At one point, the facility was nicknamed “The Walls” and was also dubbed “the bloodiest 47 acres in America.”
